Running around the streets of New York’s “burbs,” on a nice January morning…stress all gone and ready for the day.
Those who know me are aware of my ten mile bashes at certain times of the year in memory of my mates no longer here. I’ve blogged about it more than once in the past. It helps me mentally and it helps me to remember great mates.
Well, every now and again between other fitness routines, I’ll throw in a ten mile tab/run with boots and a 30lb Bergen just for the hell of it…or really to mix up my training routines.
It’s just another fitness event, but boy does it relax me. There’s nothing better than throwing on a pack and going for it. Preferably over the hills, but for me my preferred hills are thousands of miles away…the Brecon Beacons in Wales.
So for an easy fit (excuse the pun) the generally quiet roads of my wee town over here are just fine for going out jogging, and the odd tab/run with the Bergen when I can’t give up the whole day to travel to the hills.
Five to eight miles is generally my limit these days, but occasionally I’ll throw in a ten…such as this morning.
Feeling great, back to a different fitness event tomorrow…the Concept 2 rower.
